It has been some time now since I have been able to find a can of Oust.So I decided to send an email to the company and here is there response...
Dr.Hallucination...not really in the email lol.
Thank you for taking the time to let us know how much you trust our Oust® Air Sanitizer to remove the nasty odors that can lurk about.
Because you find Oust® to work so well for you, I'm really sorry to have to let you know we are no longer manufacturing Oust®. I can imagine how disappointing this news must be. Please be assured I will share your comments with our brand team.
Since we do appreciate your loyalty to our product, I've mailed a complimentary coupon to your home address. I hope you enjoy which ever product you choose.
If we can help in any other way, please let us know.
Have a nice day,
.......

Lysol is a surface disinfectant, whereas Oust was one that worked on airborne bacteria and spores. Don't worry, its not the only deionizing aerosol product. I prefer Ozium, personally...

I haven't been able to find the unscented Oust in quite a while. I still see the scented cans in stores, though. Lysol Neutra Air seems to work okay.

Lysol Neutra air is working great for our projects Dr. Hallucination. Give it a shot.

Is it possible the company meant that 'oust air' original wouldn't be made anymore? all I see now everywhere I go is "oust surface and air"...

Miss the scent of Oust compared to the Lysol! The cat is currently using Lysol Neutra Air. Ingredients and ratios seem fairly similar...

Errr I feel somewhat stupid now, but so thankful I came across this thread, swim was using the walmart knockoff brand of lysol because its like twice the size and half the price with nearly the same amounts of actives.

Long story short swim has been using it in his glovebox for cloning/spawning and all sorts of other good stuff but has had contam problems even when wiping it all down with 91% iso and starting to put it all together now, I dont wanna blame the disinfectant for swims mistakes but swim figured in high enough concentrates nothing could live in there no matter if its ment for surface disinfecting or not. Everything is heavily sprayed with it exspecially the gloves, walls and floor of the glovebox

I would suggest bleach/water for cleaning your glovebox.

Yea, my local WM had plenty, but I guess I need to pick up more, thanks for the heads up! The stuff is pretty pricey compared to the generic brand but I imagine it is much better as all kinds of people here speak highly of it, I guess we'll find out in a few days. ;)
